I’ve been writing recently about Apache Mesos and it’s importance as an operating system kernel for the next generation data center. You can read those posts here: Part 1: True OS For The SDDC Part 2: Digging Deeper Into Mesos Part 3: Dealing with Persistent Storage And Fault Tolerance Part 4: Resource Allocation Besides the […]

A key capability that makes Apache Mesos a viable uber resource manager for the data center is its ability to play traffic cop amongst a diversity of workloads.  The purpose of this post will be to dig into the internals of resource allocation in Mesos and how it balances fair resource sharing with customer workload […]

In part 1 of this series on Apache Mesos, I provided a high level overview of the technology and in part 2, I went into a bit more of a deep dive on the Mesos architecture.  I ended the last post stating I would do a follow-up post on how resource allocation is handled in […]

In my previous post, I provided the proverbial 10,000 foot overview of Apache Mesos and it’s value as a resource manager for the data center.  It’s time to dig a little deeper into the technology and walk though the components that make Mesos such a great candidate for a data center OS kernel.  Most of […]

This is the first of a series of blog posts on the Apache Mesos project and technology.  We begin first with an introductory overview. I have a confession to make… I’ve come to loathe the term “Software Defined Data Center (SDDC).”  I don’t have a problem with the concept; my issue has to do with […]

There’s been much talk in recent years about the merits of having a benevolent dictator guide the OpenStack Project a la Linux Torvalds and the Linux Kernel.  While I don’t want to get into the merits of such an approach in this blog post, I do want to call out that in the absence of […]

One of the things I enjoy most about being part of the OpenStack community is the amount of content available (sometime too much content) about the technology and the ecosystem.  I’ve had the privilege to contribute some of that content myself, particularly in the past month.  So, I thought it might be helpful to at […]
